Website makeovers can become horribly corrupted, go way off course from the original intent, and sometimes end up hopelessly compromised, and even go undelivered. I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately, particularly of Seth and 37Signals, and their lessons as they pertain to my goals in overhauling were highly instructive (seriously, if you […]

How to Save Attachments on the iPhone

by Tim M on March 7, 2010

Seeing as I am heading overseas soon, I needed a way of saving attachments (pdfs, specifically, for plane itineraries and passport scans) from emails on my iPhone (both from the Mail app and from a browser) to my iPhone. I didn’t want to have them just attached to emails (even IF I had downloaded them), […]

I recently finished and launched my first ebook; Cycling through France – a comprehensive guide to planning and executing a cycling trip to France for leisure, the Tour de France or L’Etape Du Tour (you read about our fun and games in 2009 here).

After about 5 months live, and recovering my costs (USD400 for Paul’s excellent services), I thought I’d write about the successful and not-so-successful parts of how I did this.

How to publish a 40 page ebook in 7 hours.

by Tim M on October 1, 2009

There it is.

Here’re the key things to remember.
1. Know what the hell you’re talking about.
2. Sit down, put some rad music on (I suggest Muse, Brand New, Rise Against, Sublime, The (very awesome) Red Eyes. Smash it. DO NOT EDIT.
3. Read, edit, publish.

That’s it. Now go make it happen.

After writing my Very Useful Guide post to integrating Facebook and WordPress, I thought I’d put it all in a guide you can download.

This Web2.0 business can be a bit overwhelming: Facebook, Twitter, FriendFeed, Ning, Vimeo – the list of sites and services is ever-expanding and pretty confusing.

For me though, two services clearly stand out – Twitter and Facebook. Both are great for communicating with users and getting information and news out. I don’t have a personal FB account as I personally abhorr the crap people put on FB – it’s a great business tool, nothing else (FB have done a great job of convincing people it’s a great personal “tool” too).
